hi:

got www.lavasoftusa.com

download ad-aware and do the scan

this will detect adbots and spyware that will mess with your system

delete everything it finds

try the files again

if you get problems you must have downloaded a bad codec

nimco codec pack made a similar problem for me so if you have that installed
uninstall it and try the file again

if it wont play but does not crash you've found the source and we'll help you find the proper codec

please post your results

cheers
